So Cool: Mount Airy Bike Shop Installs SEPTA Bus Mural with Working Bike Rack
Guys, I just stumbled across a post on the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia’s blog and I couldn’t not share it with you: It’s all about the mural above, installed by Mount Airy bike shop Philly Electric Wheels. So you see the SEPTA mural — a new addition to the shop — up there? Get this: That bike rack sitting on the mural is a working SEPTA bike rack, and the shop uses it to teach riders how to get their bikes on and off of a SEPTA bus — usually a pretty intimidating process, mostly for the stank eye you get while trying to figure it out.
The mural was painted by local artist Meg Lemiuer. As she told the Bicycle Coalition, the owner of the shop “called me one day saying that she had always wanted to have a SEPTA bus painted on the front of her shop so that she could mount this SEPTA bike rack to it. She teaches her customers how to use the rack … I thought it was a great idea and I love painting mural-sized pieces, so I jumped at the job. And now that I know how to use the bike rack, I will definitely use them myself!”
So if you’re looking to learn how to master the art of putting your bike on SEPTA bike rack, you know where to go to learn!
